Default An Entire City has Power Knocked Out in a Matter of Seconds (Video)

I just seen this video posted where a camera was overlooking a city in Syria at night time and after several seconds of bombs raining down over the city, it goes entirely black. The video has sound too, so turn our speakers ups and maximize the video on your screen. I never seen something like this before, but it looks like major power facilities were hit by bombs.

You see the bomb hit about 11 seconds into the shot. No bigger than the other bursts, just an orangish flash, then all goes dark. There is a much larger bluish flash near the same spot, about 3 seconds later. I wonder if that was a transformer or the generator?

For those that haven't heard we almost went back a couple of centuries in a matter of hours a few years back.
